Care of Plants. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

Care of Plants. 1 Many people who, for one reason or another, do not keep a stall of servants, are worried by the thought that if they go away for a i.few days the ferns and other plants in the houso will probably die for want-of water. This difficulty can, however, be surmounted with but a very little trouble. All that is needed is a bucket of water, a table, and some strips of muslin. On the table stand the bucket full of water, and place one end of each piece of muslin in it with some weight or other. The other end of tho muslin should rest on the flowerpots, arranged in a circlo round the table on the lloor. The water will soak slowly through the muslin into the earth, and will keep it at a uniform moisture for days. An Important thing to remember is that the width of the muslin should be varied according to the size of the flower-pot. A scholastic journal gives this story as "strictly true." A class had studied tho first chap , ter of Acts, concerning the election of a new apos...

The Eerman Menace. HOW AUSTRALIA WILL FARE. After seeing the distress that bas — arisen in Broken Hill through men •'■■■■ being put out of work, Mr. A.

' We can only lose when the British fleet is destroyed. If that happeus we shall be compelled to submit to most crushing terms, for those are the only terms Germany will offer, and that will be the end of everything for us. Germany could land as many troops or settlers in Australia as she wished. Certainly she would go to the Northern Terri tory, for Germany wants tropical possessions. I have always thought that Germany looked upon Aus tralia as the prize in their war with, the British Empire.

You need not be a sort of touch-me-not, 'out on tho other hand do not gush or be too sentimental or demonstrative. Wail before you open too widely , the door which reveals your soul. A girl't love is a very prccious and a very sacred thing.

THE FARM. HARVESTING LUCERNE FOR HAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

THE FARM. -J HARVESTING LUCERNE FOR HAY, "Forage crops suffer both in yield and quality if harvested too early or too late. Much damage is done, also, when too much or too little time is given for curing. Lucerne is especially susceptible to mistreat ment bccause the leaves may be lost, the colour spoiled and soluble nutri ents lost by a little neglect, and it pays good returns for care owing to tho high price of a first-class pro duct. First class luccrne hay has fine stems, many leaves, and a bright, pea-green colour," says R. L. Stew art, of the New Mexico College of Agriculture. "If lucerne has made a rank growth it will be found necessary to harvest at an earlier period than if'it has grown slowly. Rank growth means coarse hay. This is why the second cutting of hay. is usually 'coarser and not so good in quality as the first cutting. If the lucerne is allow ed to stand too long before cutting, the lower leaves will turn yellow and fall, and the part that the hay buy er most des...

The Radium Mystery. MIGHTIEST POWER KNOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

The Radium Mystery. y MIGHTIEST TOWElt KNOWN. Tiaflio-activity is a recently dis covered property ot" the atoms of matter which causes them to send oil continuously, and of their own accord, streams of radiation, some of which consist of almost infinite ly small particles (very much smaller than average atoms themselves), whilo others are, apparently, only vibrations in the ether, in which re spect Prof. Garrett I'. Serviss points out in a recent paper from which we quote, they resemble waves of light and of electricity. One result of radio-activity is that the atoms of matter affected by it gradually disintegrate or disappear. Only a few substances aro known to bo radio-active, but it has been :onjectured that all substances may possess this property in a .degree at present imperceptible to us, and thus the universo may,bo slowly dis solving. The known radio-active bodies are the substances called "uranium" and "thorium," together with 'certain elements derived from them, the most ...

Tim. ii. 15). We are all sadly aware tli.-it not many Christians have the full assurance of faith mentioned in the Scriptures, the speaker .said. Indeed, wo must all admit that the great majority are losing not only' their faith, but also the basis of faith. For years tilio great colleges of Christendom have been undermining faith by undermin ing the JJible. While they do not make an attack upon faith itself, yet they proceed to do the very same work that Robert Ingersoll and Thomas Paine tried to accom plish—to undermine confidence in the liiblc as the Word of God. That confidence is the very basis of all faitili. The Pastor demonstrated that those who lcject the Bible as the Word of God have no other' foundation for whatever faith they may possess than the guess of this <>r that ...

HOW ANIMALS BEAR PAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 September 1914

HOW ANIMALS BEAR PAIN. One of the most pathetic things is .he manner in which the animal Ring-1 iom endures suffering. Take horses, or instance, in battle. After the first ihoek of a wound, they make no ; •.ouncl. They bear the pain with a I .nuie, wondering endurance, and if •it night you hear a wild groan from the battlefield, it comes from their 'oneliness, their loss of that human .•ompanionship which seems absol utely indispensible to the comfort of ill domesticated animals. The dog will carry a broken leg for lays, wistfully, but uncomplaining 'y. The cat, struck with stick or stone, or caught in some trap from •vhich it gnaws its way to freedom, rawls to some secret place and bears a silence pain which we couid not tidure. Sheep and cattle will endure great iain without a sound, and even com-, inoii poultry endure intense agony without complaint. The dove, shot anto death, flies to some far off bough, and as it dies the silence is unbroken, save by the patter of its nvn life ...
